After a wonderful summer sailing to Maine getting as far as Acadia National Park and Sommes Sound, beautiful area, I'm back in Annapolis and find myself crewless. My sailing partner had to get home to help family and now I need help sailing to St Augustine. So if Anyone wants to crew on a beautiful 60' wooden ketch to sunny Florida, here's the opportunity. I'm easy going and experienced and have a well equipped and comfortable boat. I might try to single hand her to Portsmouth, VA, based on the situation. Hope to hear from some good crew members.

When I stopped in to pickup Larry I mentioned the good haul out yard I'd heard about from a friend with a Hans Christian 48. He has his boat there now. I finally tracked him and the details down.

I guess this is where I respond. Still having trouble figuring this thing out. Anyway, currently in Portsmouth, VA. A friend came by to help but he might have to lesve for a few days. Witing for calmer weather to intercoastal to Beaufort, NC. Then based on weather, either inside or out on down the coast. I have to be in St Augustine before 11/7, starting captains school then. If interested in crewing, let me know. Will probably leave here on Thurs. Thanks, Skip

Skip,
What is your plan at this point? Leaving Annapolis when? How many legs do you plan? Where to where?

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"
